SAU 15 Chairperson Kim Royer has announced that the SAU 15 Board has not selected a candidate to replace retiring superintendent Dr. Phil Littlefield. The Board previously announced it had narrowed the field of candidates to three finalists – William Van Bennekum, Chris Martin, and Christopher Pratt. Each candidate was interviewed by the Search Committee and participated in an SAU-wide public “meet and greet” where members of the three SAU 15 communities, as well as the entire SAU 15 Board, had an opportunity discuss, ask questions and further interview each of the candidates.
“Despite a thorough and robust discussion on Wednesday January 17, 2018, the Board did not make a decision on any of the candidates,” said Ms. Royer. “However, the SAU 15 Board remains committed to working through a diligent and thoughtful process to find our next educational leader,” she said.
The SAU 15 Board will be scheduling a meeting shortly to discuss next steps in the process and will inform the public as soon as possible.
